    No. But just to cover yourself, if you ever go to buy a lower make sure you have them register it as a "Pistol" or "other". Even if your intention is to make a SBR, because then you will always have the option to make it a pistol.
    Once a rifle always a rifle.

    How do you "register" a lower without going through NFA?

    He means it should be marked as a pistol on the 4473, but that doesn't work anymore. It should be marked as 'other' and can be built into a rifle or a pistol.

    Would it be better to mark all your lowers as other so you could use it for either?
    Or would that cause different problems?

    If they are a bare receiver they should be marked as other by the FFL. This is the reason the option was added to the 4473. It really isn't a rifle or a pistol, and can be built into either. So you have to be 21 now to get a stripped receiver of any kind through a FFL.

    Sure, but only at first purchase. Once a rifle stock has been attached, it is a rifle, no matter how it's marked. It can never be used as a pistol again.
